+++ A340 landing in Lemwerder +++

One of the last opportunities to catch some impressions of Lemwerder was on 1/18/2004, when Lufthansa flew in one of their A340 for maintenance. Unfortunately, the airport is being closed in spring 2004, hundreds of jobs are lost without replacement.

We luckily made it in time, as the A340 is already in final


Nice to look at: the reversers at work


Here comes the only movement of the day




On this picture the APUs almost look like real engines ;-)


Welcome to Lemwerder!


The taxi is already waiting for the crew


That was it.


All these stored aircraft like Singapore's A340 have to go out before the airport's last lights will
